Questions & Answers

Question: What is a zone?

The concept of zone is similar to that of a network. All devices in a zone can communicate with each other and a user must connect to a zone in order to control the devices that belong to it.

  • A zone may consist of up to 200 devices and contain up to 32,000 groups and 16 scenes.
  • There is no limit to the number of zones you can create.
  • The network name of a zone must be locally unique.

Question: What is a group?

Group is a collection of one or more devices that share a common property, such as location or purpose.

While there is no specific limit to the number of devices that each group may consist of, a device may only be part of up to 8 groups.
(the exact number of groups that a device can be part of may vary depending on the device model)

Question: What is a scene?

A scene can be used to specify different control levels for a set of devices and groups.

  • Only configuration groups can be specified in a scene.
  • Device configuration always takes precedence over group configuration in a scene.
    (e.g. if you configure a control level for the device that is part of the group that is specified in the same scene, the device control level is applied)
  • Up to 16 scenes can be created in a zone.
